Administrative History of Illinois Federation of Labor

The Illinois Federation of Labor held its first convention in Chicago, Illinois in 1884. A member of the American Federation of Labor since 1886, the state organization pursued the same general economic goals of craft unionism such as higher wages and benefits, shorter working hours, and better working conditions. The Illinois State Federation of Labor became the Illinois AFL-CIO when the national AFL and CIO merged in 1955.
